Have you read Scott Cole’s SuperGhost yet? It’s the story of a mad scientist who harvests phantom limbs from the bodies of amputees (yes, you read that right) and assembles them into a giant ghost-monster! Cole’s “SuperGhost September” is a promotional contest that gives his profits to a great cause.
SuperGhost September is a great contest because it gives Dread readers a chance to win some cool SuperGhost-themed prizes. To enter, just buy a copy of this inexpensive book from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble, and email proof of purchase (a screenshot of your receipt, for example) to firstname.lastname@example.org. For this you’ll receive 2 entries for the drawing of prizes listed below.
For every book purchased throughout the month of September, Scott will give 100% of his author royalties to charity. As a thematic tie-in (many of the book’s characters are amputees), September royalties will go to the LIMBS FOR LIFE FOUNDATION, an organization that works to provide prosthetic limbs to amputees who cannot otherwise afford them. Buying SuperGhost via smile.amazon.com means that even more money goes to Limbs For Life.
Already read SuperGhost? Post your thoughts via Amazon, Goodreads, Barnes & Noble, your blog, etc., and earn 1 entry per review posted (meaning you can post the review to multiple sites for multiple entries – although Amazon and Goodreads are the best places for this, as more reviews on those sites make books more visible to more people). Don’t forget to email Scott with links to your reviews to be entered.
Best of all? This contest is eligible to people anywhere in the world!
